The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae was used for expressing the genes encoding the ionotropic N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor subunits from rats (NR1a, NR2A, NR2C) and mice (NR2B). Four plasmids were constructed by cloning the different NMDA receptor genes in the two multi-copy yeast-Escherichia coli shuttle vectors pMB01 (--> NR1a gene) and pMB02 (-->(More)
Sensitivity of yeast cells to the bifunctional alkylating agent nitrogen mustard (HN2) depends on two independently operating physiological mechanisms of cellular metabolism: dynamics of uptake of HN2 via choline permease, encoded in the gene HNM1/CTR, and repair of HN2-induced DNA damage. Uptake of choline and HN2 is impaired in mutant alleles of HNM1/CTR,(More)
The genes encoding the ionotropic N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor subunits NR1a, NR2B and NR2D were cloned in the multi-copy yeast-Escherichia coli shuttle vectors pMBO1 and pMB02. The protease-deficient yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae c13-ABYS-86 (leu-, ura-, his-) was transformed with the recombinant plasmids pMBNR1a (leu+), pMBNR1a/pMBNR2D (ura+),(More)
The sequence of a 5653 bp DNA fragment of the right arm of chromosome II of Saccharomyces cerevisiae contains two unknown open reading frames (YBR1212 and YBR1213) next to gene CDC28. Gene disruption reveals both putative genes as non-essential. ORF YBR1212 encodes a predicted protein with 71% similarity and 65% identity (total polypeptide of 376 aa) with(More)
Hedgehog signaling pathway is a conserved and important signaling pathway involved in proliferation and differentiation of many types of cells. Latest studies have found that Hedgehog signaling pathway may induce MSCs osteoblast differentiation by increasing the expression of the Runx2 and Osx and inhibit MSCs differentiate to adipocyte. Hedgehog signaling(More)
